Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 in Nepal will definitely fulfill all of your demands in NRs 70,000 range If you are planning to buy a laptop to give/take online classes, prepare documents, do blogging and/or for entertainment purposes.
Hi There. This is a review of Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 laptop which I bought nearly a month ago and have been using it daily since then. It has not disappointed me so far. With its fast performance supported by a quick 256 GB SSD has made my work a lot quicker. Taking and giving online classes have also been super easy because it features a touch screen and a 360 degrees turn, as well.
Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 in Nepal
I had a tight budget of around 70000 NRs. Within that budget, I wanted to have a laptop that would be fast, had really good battery life and a wider screen. I bought this laptop merely to take online classes but to learn to give online classes. Well, blogging was also another thing which I wanted to do with this laptop.
After making lots of google searches and visiting many websites, I finally came across P.Tech KTM’s website and found this laptop.
Call it fortune or something else, I saw this laptop when I searched “Laptop By Brand: Lenovo” in the search box. As I only had a budget of around 70,000 I could not expect a laptop better than this.
Here are the specification of this laptop:
- Processor: AMD Ryzen 3 4300U processor with Quad-core CPU
- Graphics: Integrated AMD Radeon Graphics
- Memory: 4GB DDR4 RAM
- Storage: 256GB SSD Storage
- Display: 14-inch (1920 x 1080 pixels) IPS LCD Glossy TouchScreen display, HD (720p)
- Webcam with Privacy Shutter, Stereo Speakers, 20.9mm thickness, 1.5KG Weight
Now, let us talk in points about this:
Let me tell you something. I use Microsoft Edge for 4 hours a day with this laptop. And with a single 100% full charge, I can use this laptop for 2 and 1/2 days (10 hours approximately) and the battery reduces by just 70-75% and I would still remain with 30% battery left.
360 degrees Rotation
It supports completely 360 degrees rotation and has been really helpful when I have to go through a PDF. It fulfills the lack of a tablet, as well. I had a slight misunderstanding that if a laptop can be flipped through a complete turn, it is likely to break, and so do you (I guess). But, I have been proven wrong as I love using this feature frequently.
Camera with Privacy Shutter
I appreciate this feature a lot that it has in-built privacy shutter which can be turned on or off mechanically using a button present just on top of the laptop’s camera.
Why is this useful? Having it turned off, we can ensure that no hackers or crackers can access our videos, even if they make into our system successfully. Also, it is useful while taking online classes as in cases, you don’t want your face to be visible on camera, you can turn on the video but still only black screen would be visible to others.
How can I neglect this feature? You can use this to convert your laptop into a tablet or a smartphone. You don’t have to do anything. Simply you can use this feature by tapping on the screen.
However, there are few drawbacks to this laptop as well.
- It does not have backlight in the keyboard. Without this feature, it may be difficult to some people while using it in the dark.
- It has just 4 GB RAM. So, I do not suggest buying this for gaming or video editing purposes.
If I had to suggest you to buy a laptop when you only had around NRs 70000, I would definitely recommend this one!
